Abstract: A case study is presented that centres on my 2019 PhD fieldwork for the Centre of Innovative Ageing at Swansea University, research to better understand relationships between the ageing population and neighbourhood life. The Caerleon case study complements existing research on how walking helps the individual to connect with their deeper relationships with everyday spaces like the house and the street. Specifically I go beyond existing theory to present a way of deep mapping a place by using walking interviews with individuals and two public promenades. To start we ask why the pedestrian perspective has perhaps been neglected.
